Blower: Starter Rope Won't Retract

Our troubleshooting and repair guide can help you identify why your blower starter rope will not recoil. With our list of suggested parts, such as the pawls, connecting rod, and pulley, your blower will be working properly again. This is a general guide for your repair; for more detailed information on your model, refer to the owner’s manual.

Pulleys
Pulleys
Your leaf blower starter rope is connected to the pulley, which in turn engages the starter pawl and spins the flywheel. If the pulley is damaged where it attaches, it will cause the spring to disconnect from the pulley and the rope will not be able to retract. This same problem can result from damage to the spring, so when you’re troubleshooting your machine, be sure to determine whether the spring, the pulley or another part is broken, so you can fix it effectively.

Starters
Starters
The starter rope on your leaf blower is a part of the starter assembly, which rotates to being the engine firing process. When functioning normally, the rope will retract back into the machine after it has been pulled. If this does not happen you will not be able to pull the rope again, and therefore will be unable to start the blower. This symptom is usually caused by one of the components of the starter assembly so replacing the entire starter is a fast and easy way to fix it.

Starter Springs
Starter Springs
The starter spring in your leaf blower is contained within the starter assembly, attached to the pawl. If the starter spring is broken, it can cause the rope to become unable to retract. As with many of the individual pieces in your blower’s starter assembly, the spring can become dislodged and/or broken if you pull the rope with too much force. This can lead to the inability to retract the cord as well.

Ropes
Ropes
Sometimes, when your starter rope will not retract into your leaf blower, it can be because it is jammed between the pulley and the housing, or it is wrapped around the hub. In this case, you will often be able to fix the symptom by simply opening the machine and untangling or removing the rope from where it is stuck. However, if the rope is damaged, you may want to consider replacing it, as you will not be able to start the blower if the rope breaks off completely.

Pawls
Pawls
If your starter rope will not retract, it could be a result of a damaged pawl. The starter pawl should retract on its own, which in turn will retract the rope so you can attempt another pull start. As with many of the small parts involved in your blower’s starter assembly, pawls can become damaged with excessive force during the pull start.
